Two surveys by inkjet cartridge and mobile phones recycling company Environmental Business Products suggest that the public is keen to support charities using affinity programmes in addition to giving monetary gifts.An online survey of 1,500 charity supporters by the company’s Each One Counts campaign found that 69% were ‘happy to consider’ all or most affinity scheme examples such as recycling, charity credit cards or search engines.In addition, a YouGov research study of 2,491 adults in late July 2008, commissioned by Each One Counts, found that 81% of the public who do not already recycle mobiles and printer cartridges to help a charity said they would do so if a charity was to benefit. Less than 10% who donated money said that they did not want to be bothered with affinity schemes.Each One Counts argue therefore that charities should encourage their donors to consider other ways in which to give on top of their donations, especially when these additional gifts do not cost them anything.Amy Horn, manager of the Each One Counts recycling campaign, said: “We have firm evidence from our extensive research programme over the last few months that charities are missing out on free fundraising income. Not only have we established that about £130 million extra is just waiting to be collected by charities through improved recycling, but we seem to have blown the myth that asking supporters to recycle at the same time as asking for cash donations could cause offence. Supporters seem keen to do both.”www.eachonecounts.co.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

first_img By Gary Truitt – Feb 8, 2016 SHARE U.S. ethanol exports finished the year on a high note, with 81.7 million gallons (mg) of product shipping out to both emerging and longtime markets. Canada was the top destination in December, receiving 21.3 mg. Oman (13.4 mg), China (10.6 mg), the Philippines (8.8 mg), and the Netherlands (8.8 mg) were other leading importers of U.S. ethanol. December ethanol exports were up 39% over November, reaching their highest monthly level since March. As documented in a new statistical report released by the Renewable Fuels Association last week, U.S. ethanol exports totaled 836 mg in 2015—identical to the 2014 final tally. The RFA report provides details on top export destinations, shifts in the marketplace, ethanol import volumes, the value of exports, and other key data regarding U.S. ethanol trade in 2015.Denatured fuel ethanol exports totaled 50.3 mg in December, the highest monthly total of the year and up 57% from November. At 19.3 mg, Canada was once again the leading importer of denatured product. Meanwhile, Oman imported sizeable volumes (13.4 mg) of denatured fuel ethanol for just the third time on record. Relative newcomer China (10.6 mg), the Netherlands (4.3 mg), and Peru (2.6 mg) were other top spots for denatured fuel ethanol exports. December exports of undenatured fuel ethanol tallied at 28.6 mg, up 18% from November. The Philippines (8.8 mg), Brazil (6.4 mg), the Netherlands (4.5 mg), Belgium-Luxembourg (2.6 mg), and Mexico (2.2 mg) were the top five markets for undenatured product in December. Exports of denatured and undenatured ethanol for non-fuel, non-beverage purposes were 2.8 mg, with Canada receiving 2.0 mg.U.S. fuel ethanol imports fell to 9.4 mg in December, less than half of the November import volume. Total imports of fuel ethanol finished the year at 93.2 mg, up slightly from 2014. More than 99% of December imports originated in Brazil, with the remaining imports coming from Germany.Exports of U.S. distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS)—the animal feed co-product manufactured by dry mill ethanol plants—rebounded slightly in December, with 988,356 metric tons (mt) of outbound shipments. That was up 5% from November, but still well below monthly export levels recorded from May through October. DDGS exports finished the year at 12.55 million mt, a new annual record.China remained as the top market for U.S. DDGS exports in December, despite setting an 11-month low. China received 226,049 mt, down 20% from November and less than one-quarter of the DDGS volume imported as recently as July. Fortunately, other markets continued to step up their imports, with big increases seen in Mexico (166,321 mt), South Korea (110,916 mt), Canada (66,002 mt), and Vietnam (65,703 mt). For the full calendar year, China was the top market, receiving 6.3 million mt, or 50% of total exports. Mexico was the No. 2 market at 1.65 million mt (13%), while Vietnam (660,032 mt), South Korea (643,572 mt), and Canada (511,783 mt) rounded out the top five.

first_img Business News 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News Community News Sierra Madre Says Its Tiered Water Rates Comply With Court Decision Published on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 | 11:12 am On Monday, the Court of Appeal issued its decision analyzing whether conservation water rates (also known as tiered water rates or inclining block rates) utilized in the City of San Juan Capistrano are consistent with the provisions of Proposition 218 requirements that a fee charged to a property owner shall not exceed the proportional cost of the service attributable to the property. When the decision was issued, Sierra Madre, which has a tiered water rate structure created for compliance with Prop 218 requirements, reviewed its own water rate study to ensure that the City’s tiers are also consistent with the Court’s decision.After review, City Attorney Highsmith stated, “Sierra Madre’s tiered rates comply with the recent Appellate Court decision because the City’s water rate tiers reflect the cost of providing water at the various tier levels, as required by Prop 218. The City’s rate study shows that each rate is tied to the cost of providing the water.” City Manager Aguilar further stated, “In 2013, when Sierra Madre completed the most recent rate study, the City was fully aware of the San Juan Capistrano case and took efforts to make sure the tiers were tied to the cost of providing water at the different tier levels.”It is important to note that the Court of Appeal did not decide that all tiered water rates are illegal, rather the Court analyzed Prop 218 requirements and determined that the rates in each tier must reflect the cost of service for property owners falling in that tier. Sierra Madre’s 2013 Rate Study used a different methodology to determine the rates per tier, as compared to the San Juan Capistrano rate study. Sierra Madre’s complete rate study can be found on the website at, http://cityofsierramadre.com/water.The Court of Appeal case is Capistrano Taxpayers Association, Inc. v. City of San Juan Capistrano Case No. G048969.For further information regarding water conservation, or the City’s water rate structure, please contact City Hall at (626) 355-7135.

first_img Religion and the death penalty collide at the Supreme Court Pinterest Twitter WhatsApp Twitter WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is sending a message to states that want to continue to carry out the death penalty: Inmates must be allowed to have a spiritual adviser by their side as they are executed. The high court around midnight Thursday declined to let Alabama proceed with the lethal injection of Willie B. Smith III. Smith had objected to Alabama’s policy that his pastor would have had to observe his execution from an adjacent room rather than the death chamber itself. The order from the high court follows two years in which inmates saw some rare success in bringing challenges based on the issue of chaplains in the death chamber. This time, liberal and conservative members of the court normally in disagreement over death penalty issues found common ground not on the death penalty itself but on the issue of religious freedom and how the death penalty is carried out. Justice Brett Kavanaugh, one of three justices who said they would have let Smith’s execution go forward, said Alabama’s policy applies equally to all inmates and serves a state interest in ensuring safety and security. But he said it was apparent that his colleagues who disagreed were providing a path for states to follow. States that want to avoid months or years of litigation over the presence of spiritual advisers “should figure out a way to allow spiritual advisors into the execution room, as other States and the Federal Government have done,” he wrote in a dissent joined by Chief Justice John Roberts. Justice Clarence Thomas also would have allowed the execution of Smith, who was sentenced to die for the 1991 murder of 22-year-old Sharma Ruth Johnson in Birmingham. Alabama had up until 2019 allowed a Christian prison chaplain employed by the state to be physically present in the execution chamber if requested by the inmate, but the state changed its policy in response to two earlier Supreme Court cases. Robert Dunham, the executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, says the court’s order will most clearly affect states in the Deep South that have active execution chambers. Dunham said most state execution protocols, which set who is present in the death chamber, do not mention spiritual advisers. For most of the modern history of the U.S. death penalty since the 1970s, spiritual advisers have not been present in execution chambers, he said. The federal government, which under President Donald Trump resumed federal executions following a 17-year hiatus and carried out 13 executions, allowed a spiritual adviser to be present in the death chamber. The Biden administration is still weighing how it will proceed in death penalty cases. The court’s order in Smith’s case contained only statements from Kavanaugh and Justice Elena Kagan. “Willie Smith is sentenced to death, and his last wish is to have his pastor with him as he dies,” Kagan wrote for herself and liberal justices Sonia Sotomayor and Stephen Breyer, as well as conservative Amy Coney Barrett. Kagan added: “Alabama has not carried its burden of showing that the exclusion of all clergy members from the execution chamber is necessary to ensure prison security.” Justice Neil Gorsuch and Justice Samuel Alito did not make public their views, but at least one or perhaps both of them must have voted with their liberal colleagues to keep Smith’s execution on hold. The court’s yearslong wrestling with the issue of chaplains in the death chamber began in 2019, when the justices declined to halt the execution of Alabama inmate Domineque Ray. Ray had objected that a Christian chaplain employed by the prison typically remained in the execution chamber during a lethal injection, but the state would not let his imam be present. The next month, however, the justices halted the execution of a Texas inmate, Patrick Murphy, who objected after Texas officials wouldn’t allow his Buddhist spiritual adviser in the death chamber. Kavanaugh wrote at the time that states have two choices: Allow all inmates to have a religious adviser of their choice in the execution room or allow that person only in an adjacent viewing room. In response, the Texas prison system changed its policy, allowing only prison security staff into the execution chamber. But in June, the high court kept Texas from executing Ruben Gutierrez after he objected to the new policy. Diana Verm, a lawyer at the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which had submitted briefs in two of the spiritual adviser cases, said it was unusual for the court with its conservative majority to halt executions. “You can tell from some of the opinions that the justices don’t like the last-minute nature of execution litigation, but this is an area where they are saying: ‘Listen … religious liberty has to be a part of the process if it’s going to happen,” Verm said.

In this regard, reliance is placed on the SC precedent in Aveek Sarkar vs State of West Bengal, which held that only sex-related materials “exciting lustful thoughts” can be regarded as obscene.She states that the video was made and uploaded with the intention of spreading a message to “normalize the female form of body for her children and to not allow distorted ideas of sexualization pervade their minds”.”The petitioner, while being semi-nude, has allowed her body to be used as a canvas by her children to pain on, and there can probably be nobody except a pervert, who would be aroused to seuxal desire by seeing the nature of the work”, the petition states.Challenging the invocation of Section 13 of POCSO by the HC, the petition stated :”There has been absolutely no indecent or obscene representation of a child in this case – in fact, they merely paint in an expressionless manner as children are wont to do. It is therefore impossible to conclude that any child was used for sexual gratification”.The video featuring the children of Rehana Fathima – a boy aged 14 years and a girl aged 8 years – had caused widespread outrage, leading to registration of FIRs against her alleging obscene representation of children.Her application states that the following issues arise in the matter in the context of personal liberty under Article 21 of the Constitution :Whether female nudity(even when not visible) per se constitutes obscenity.Whether children painting on their mother’s body can be concluded to be “sexual gratification” and “child abuse” under these stringent laws.Proceedings in HC Seeking pre-arrest bail from High Court, Rehna Fathima contended that her acts were intended to enable her children to view body and body parts “as a different medium altogether rather than seen it as a sexual tool alone”. She said that she had launched a campaign called “Body Politics and Art” to bring more open discussion on body and sexuality and that the criminal case against her was a result of the moralistic public outcry of the society.She stated that if children grow up seeing natural woman bodies, their minds will be liberated of hyper-sexualization of women. “No child who has grown up seeing his mother’s nakedness and body can abuse another female body. Therefore, vaccines against these false preceptions and expectation about women’s body and sexuality should be initiated from home itself”, she said in a note submitted before the High Court.Rejecting her arguments, Justice PV Kunhikrishan of HC observed in the order passed on July 24 : “Prima facie, I am of the opinion that the petitioner uses the children for the purpose of sexual gratification because the children are represented in the video uploaded in an indecent and obscene manner because they are painting on a naked body of their mother” After watching the video in question, the Court observed that “the expression of the petitioner, while the children are painting on her breast, is also important”. The Court said that custodial interrogation of the petitioner was required to ascertain if the use of children in the video was for “sexual gratification”. Further, the Court said that it cannot rule out the offence under Section 67B of IT Act, which relates to facilitating abusing of children online. The Court reiterated that it cannot agree with the contention of the petitioner that she was imparting sex education. “..if this painting on the naked body of the petitioner happened inside the four walls of the house of the petitioner, there cannot be any offence. After watching the picture painted by the children, I have no hesitation to appreciate the talents of the children. They deserve encouragement. But not in the way the petitioner encouraged them by uploading this video. The petitioner, when shot and uploaded these videos in social media, she also claims that she wants to teach sex education to the children in the society. I cannot accept this stand of the petitioner”. Justice Kunhikrishnan further said that after seeing the video, he cannot say that there is no obscenity involved : “I place myself in the position of the petitioner and from the view point of the viewers of every age group in whose hands this video is reached by uploading the same by the petitioner. After applying my judicial mind, I am not in a position to say that, there is no obscenity in the video when it is uploaded in the social media”.Next Storylast_img read more

Y. Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee were hearing an Article 32 petition seeking a writ of certiorari for setting aside the sentence, extending the benefit of juvenility, while maintaining the conviction.Senior Advocate S. Nagamuthu, appearing for the petitioner, drew the attention of the bench to the 2004 apex court decision in Madan Singh v. State of Bihar, where two persons, facing trial for alleged commission of various offences punishable under IPC, TADA Act and Arms Act, were held to be juveniles within the meaning of Juvenile Justice Care Protection of Children Act, 2000 and were entitled to the benefit under the said Act.”That aspect was not under appeal before the Supreme Court. This is not a judgment of our court on that point”, noted Justice Chandrachud.However, the bench recorded Mr. Nagamuthu’s submission that he seeks to rely on an order in the criminal appeal in the 1993 serial Rajdhani Express blasts, where the court had allowed the plea of juvenility plea to be raised. The bench recorded that reliance is placed on the order dated March 9, 2011 of a two-judge bench in Mohammed Jalees Ansari v. CBI, where, by an application, it was brought to the notice of the Court that on the date of the incident i.e. 5th December 1993, a co-convict Mohd. Azimuddin was less than 18 years of age and was therefore deemed to be juvenile in terms of the amendment made in 2000 in the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 1986. The bench had then directed that the applicant be released from incarceration forthwith.”The position which emerges from the record is that the conviction has attained finality by dismissal of the criminal appeal and the review petition. The issue of juvenility was raised before the Designated Court and this Court and has been dealt with specifically. This petition under Article 32 requires this Court to overturn the sentence of the petitioner which was imposed as an outcome of the TADA case. When conviction has attained finality, remedy under Article 32 is not available. However, we have allowed Mr. Nagamuthu to take the remedy available in law. “, said the bench headed by Justice Chandrachud.Narrating the sequence of events, the bench recorded that following a series of blasts at Mumbai on March 12, 1993, the petitioner was arrested on April 20,1993. He was arraigned as Accused no. 43. During the trial, the petitioner moved an application before the Designated Court seeking protection under the Juvenile Justice Act, 2000. The application was contested and on September 22, 2006, the Designated Court dismissed the application. By a judgement and order dated December 4, 2006 and July 24, 2007, the Designated Court, under TADA, convicted the petitioner and sentenced him to rigorous imprisonment for life. The petitioner filed a statutory appeal before the Supreme Court against the conviction. He also filed an appeal on the issue of juvenility, which appeal was disposed off on February 19, 2010, granting liberty to the petitioner to pursue his rights in the main appeal against the conviction. Subsequently, on March 21, 2013, the appeal against conviction was dismissed, holding that the TADA is a special purpose legislation and will have precedence over any other Acts. The review petition of the petitioner was also dismissed on July 17, 2014.’Despite the burden and the number of review petitions, we judges follow reviews very carefully’ – Justice ChandrachudThe judge then proceeded to remark, “The jurisdiction of review and curative petitions was carved out as a genuine remedy. But you won’t believe the number of review petitions we get! The petitions don’t even mention the error apparent on the face of the record; they just state the grounds like a SLP! 99% of the review petitions are like this! As judges, we are conscientious and we are worried – we quickly look through the grounds – it is very important that something doesn’t miss the court…but it doesn’t happen in our Court””Recently, there was a case where the issue of juvenility was raised for the first time before this court. There was a prisoner under section 302 who did not have legal aid. He wrote a letter from jail. There was just one line saying that he had been less than 17 years of age at the time the crime was committed. The registry had placed it as a review petition. We immediately appointed a legal aid counsel who drafted a review petition on this ground. We also directed an inquiry into it and we also have an Amicus now. But think of the poor chap who has been lost for 12-13 years!”, Justice Chnadrachud told Mr. Nagamuthu.”I have been party to benches where we have given the benefit of juvenility in the Supreme Court for the first time. We are concerned that the opportunity to argue in the forum does not get lost. Despite the burden and the number of the review petitions, the judges follow the reviews very carefully…we have our way of reading, we are looking for that one ground and we spot it!”, said Justice Chandrachud.”I feel guilty. This is how I should have done things during my tenure as a judge”, said Mr. Nagamuthu, having been a judge of the Madras High Court.”But now you are doing yeoman service on that side. You require strong lawyers on that side and judges on this side”, remarked Justice Chandrachud.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
